ORG 2022 Summer Interns promote Active Citizenship

This month, we proudly welcomed our first cohort of summer interns. In partnership with the Ministry of Youth, Sports & Culture's summer employment program - ORG recruited three young and talented Bahamians to support our programs that promote active citizenship.

Under the leadership of Tayte Adderley, our Engagement Program Manager - each our of interns are working through projects to tool Bahamian citizens to ‘Get informed & Get Involved’!

Shakynuh Sands is an Education Major at the University of The Bahamas (UB) working on ORG’s ongoing public education series for our social media platforms.

Javonne Cumberbatch is studying Computer Information Systems at UB is working on ORG’s Citizen Solution Center platform & website.

Gary Rolle III holds a Bachelor of Law degree and will receive his Legal Education Certificate in September, both from the Eugene Dupuch Law School. He is working on our National Outreach Campaign for Active Citizens.

Tayte commented "We are very grateful to have our summer interns join us. When we envisioned launching ORG's internship program, we know that the potential of expanding our impact was great - Shakynuh, Javonne & Gary have done just that!"

As ORG prepared to embark on a new campaign "Active Citizens Bahamas" that will reach Bahamians around the country, engaging them in conversation around collective action and self-determination, our interns are setting the pace for the mark we hope to leave.

ORG says a public thank you to three trailblazers for their contributions thus far!
